I have experimented in the past with combining Lenormand with both the tarot and the playing cards, with excellent results. I was about to do another spread with one of them, when I saw my Kipper cards out of the corner of my eye.
The Kipper cards are 36 in number, just like the Lenormand, so I wondered if it would combine and make any sense? Well did I ever get a surprise! They work brilliantly together!
First I shuffled the Lenormand deck with the intention of combining, and knowing that there would be 5 pairs. I did the same with the Kipper deck. Then I picked the top card of the Lenormand, then the top card of the Kipper, and placed them in the first column. I then continued picking the top card alternatively until I had 5 pairings.
It definitely tells a story.
Mice + #5 Good Lord- The mice card is all about stress and worry connected with the Good Lord. The Good Lord, I thought at first, was my husband – but upon doing a little research, realized my mistake. The Good Lord represents Authority, and Good Council among some other things. What this is referring to is the stress around dealing with the lawyers, and the legal process. It’s been very frustrating.
Clover +#1 Principle Man- The Principle Man is the correct designated card to represent my husband. Combined with the Clover it shows some kind of positive outcome for him; a lucky twist of fate. It reassures that there is something about to happen that will be beneficial to my mate. It also might have the timing of 2 days, or 2 weeks. Interestingly, this is the exact time that we are to return to the states to appear in court again.
Coffin + #9 A Change- Wow! How odd that I would get both “Change” cards together in the middle of the reading. The Coffin card talks about major changes, of completing a cycle and starting something new. I tend to relate it to the Death card in the Tarot, and don’t necessarily see it as bad at all. It’s a transition period.
Now interestingly, the Change card in the Kipper also talks about important change, but it can also be referring to another city, another place! It seems pretty obvious to me, that something major is going to happen when we fly back to the states for the next phase of the legal dispute. The Change card in the Kipper also advises remaining flexible, of being adaptable. So my husband may have to stay open in negotiating an ending to this.
Bear +#15 “Good Outcome in Love”or “Love & Friendship”-
Another nice pairing 🙂 The Bear, for me, represents money & windfalls. It’s all about financial matters.
And the #15 Kipper card, Love & Friendship, can mean the obvious of love and affection, but it can also mean a good outcome to something; a good financial outcome around this matter in another city.
Sun + #35 A Long Way- The Sun card represents Success & Victory. It’s the glory and overcoming of any adversity. The Long Way card can actually mean “trouble”, or be describing a long term, over a long period of time. So I would combine this to mean success and victory over this problem, and it’s acknowledging that it’s taken a long time, but we get there in the end.
This worked better than I ever would have imagined. I would definitely recommend this technique to other Lenormand and Kipper lovers!
